Vilna
Gaon's Disciples in Eretz -Israel 1800-1840 (Hebrew) 466 pages, Jerusalem
1997
This fascinating book is an updated collection of Dr. Arye Morgenstern's (
of the Dinur Institute, Hebrew University) research of the influence of the
Gaon of Vilna and his students on the settlement of Eretz Yisrael in the
early nineteenth century.
As such it is not a book about the Vilna Gaon.
The book is in Hebrew.

Success at Public Record Office Kew #general

Arthur S. Meyers <marciarthur@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

I've just returned >from England and visited the Public Record Office located
in Kew.

In the chance that someone out there might have the same problem I will
relate how I found
the family I was searching. My cousin said her mother, grandmother, aunt
and uncle came
to New York >from Russia with a stop made in London. I could not locate the
family on the index
to passenger lists - after many hours of searching! My cousin gave me a
copy of her mother's
passport - it was stamped London. The date stamped was July 31, 1923.
Thus I did have
a window of time - how long could you stay in England with not much money?
I arrived at Kew in the morning, filled out a short form and received a
reader's card. I went to the
department that handed out beepers which assigned a number to each person.
The librarians at the various reference desks were very helpful. I was
advised to look at references
of ships that left >from three English ports in August. I selected material
and went to the computer and
typed in my number and order - you are able to order three items at one
time. Within 15 minutes my
beeper sounded and the department where I was to go appeared on the beeper.
I couldn't
believe that within an hour I located the family and the date and ship they
sailed on.
I found the search very easy because I was looking
just for aliens and was able to go through items that said British Citizens
very quickly.
I was very impressed with the courtesy and helpfulness of everyone.
Why wasn't I able to locate the family on the index in this country? I will
get the passenger list and my
hunch is that the name was spelled wrong.

Re: British Military Medal - where do I get info? #general

clubactivesportswear@...
 

If you give me his name and the unit that he served in I will most probably
have some information on him, if you are sure that the award was 1914, it
makes research easier, as during the first few momths of the war, more
details were given , re. awards, but as the war went on, and thousands of
awards were made, the details regarding the actual awards are scrarce. I have
many WW1 mm singles and groups, you never know I might have his medal or
know the whereabouts of it?
